About the Book and Soundscape

The Sour Grape holds a grudge for every raisin under the sun. When a friend holds a grudge against the Sour Grape, she realizes how unfair grudges can be. Can forgiveness and empathy turn a sour grape into a sweet one? This soundscape is ripe with live instruments that create a folksy, vibrant sound. Keep your ears peeled for banjo, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, drum kit, and cello! In addition to funk and prog rock, the music also features some sour, sassy cues.
